A Penny For Your Thoughts

Today over at Frosted Designs is the new Sketch Along Tuesdays Sketch Challenge along with the reveal of the new DT!   The new team  members along with returning DT are so talented.  It's been awhile since I joined in with the DT members to create a layout and loved the new sketch and gave it a try.  I do have to admit that this layout is so very different from what I normally create.
Love this picture of my son.  It was taken ages ago and whenever I look at it I can't help but wonder what was on his mind.  I used lots of old stash on this one, Sassafrass Lass papers, stickers and chipboard numbers along with some rub ons, a little machine stitching and paint splatters, something new to me. I was one nervous Nelly when it came to the paint splatters!
Here are a few closeups:
When I finished my layout I realized that I used a bunch of numbers, which just happens to be the current Fabulous Friday challenge also over at Frosted Designs!
Head on over to Frosted Designs and give our new Sketch Team members a big welcome and join in on the sketch challenge:
and while you are there check out the Fabulous Friday Numbers Challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!

I really like how this came out- such fun colors. And I understand your nervousness - I was scared of "ruining" layouts - but you rocked the splatter :)
